Turn off large machines when they are not in use
Large machines can use a lot of electricity or fuel. If they are sitting idle for long periods of time, they should be turned off. Even if you do not have any large machines, you can still save money on electricity costs. Do simple things like turning off computers, printers, or outdoor signs when not in use. If you have large windows, consider turning off overhead lights. Natural sunlight can be a cheap alternative for lighting businesses that operate during daylight hours.
